Maria Sharapova will find out on 15 May whether she can compete at the French Open after her drugs ban, French tennis officials said. They added that the absence of pregnant Serena Williams would have no bearing on their decision. Two-time Roland Garros champion Sharapova returns next week from a 15-month drugs ban at the WTA Stuttgart Grand Prix. Stuttgart offered the 30-year-old Russian a wildcard entry because she no longer has a world ranking. She has also been invited to clay-court events in Madrid and Rome.
